The Facebook-Cambridge Analytica Data Scandal

Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

This is such a joke.

Half of them would bend for 1/10th of what he earns in a day, they bend for NRA lobbyists, but..OMG! I shared my stats on FB and now a bank has them! The horror!

These are the same cunts that spy/approved spying on Merkel, but want Assange arrested for revealing unethical/immoral politics reality check.

All for show,

^^ they're both cunts
Can you explain why you think someone who exposes govts doing dirty, unethical/immoral dealings is a cunt?

Isn't the ideal of any govt transparency?

Or would you prefer Assange say nothing and let millions, perhaps billions, get ripped off and deceived.

Just curious.
He's an alleged rapist hiding in an embassy? If he has done nothing wrong and nothing to hide he could just let justice take its course.

Hahaha, the fabricated charges were dropped, try and keep up.

He is being illegally detained by the UK govt and threatened with extradition to the US, for what?

Exposing the truth?

Perhaps if they behaved ethically, there would be nothing to expose, yes?

'Justice'? Bwahahaha

Do you mean like the US presidents who are basically war criminals...and Kissinger...is that your idea of justice?

Wake up and smell the coffee, and stop believing every tainted lie the sponsored media feed you.

Yes, you're right, sorry for disturbing your Fox/CNN/BBC viewing.

Carry on, and whatever you do, don't think critically, and trust everyone.

Considering how half the people doing the questions took “contributions” from Facebook it’s not really surprising they went soft on him.

More and more strange maggots crawling out of the FB woodwork.


Facebook says its ‘voter button’ is good for turnout. But should the tech giant be nudging us at all?

What do we really know about the influence of the ‘voter button’? One Icelandic media lawyer decided to find out

Last modified on Sun 15 Apr 2018 09.35 BST

On the morning of 28 October last year, the day of Iceland’s parliamentary elections, Heiðdís Lilja Magnúsdóttir, a lawyer living in a small town in the north of the country, opened Facebook on her laptop. At the top of her newsfeed, where friends’ recent posts would usually appear, was a box highlighted in light blue. On the left of the box was a button, similar in style to the familiar thumb of the “like” button, but here it was a hand putting a ballot in a slot. “Today is Election Day!” was the accompanying exclamation, in English. And underneath: “Find out where to vote, and share that you voted.” Under that was smaller print saying that 61 people had already voted. Heiðdís took a screenshot and posted it on her own Facebook profile feed, asking: “I’m a little curious! Did everyone get this message in their newsfeed this morning?”

In Reykjavik, 120 miles south, Elfa Ýr Gylfadóttir glanced at her phone and saw Heiðdís’s post. Elfa is director of the Icelandic Media Commission, and Heiðdís’s boss. The Media Commission regulates, for example, age ratings for movies and video games, and is a part of Iceland’s Ministry of Education. Elfa wondered why she hadn’t received the same voting message. She asked her husband to check his feed, and there was the button. Elfa was alarmed. Why wasn’t it being shown to everyone? Might it have something to do with different users’ political attitudes? Was everything right and proper with this election?

Facebook fends off new NYT charges over data access

REUTERS: Facebook Inc on Sunday rejected claims by the New York Times that it had allowed Apple and other major device makers "deep" access to users' personal data saying any such links were tightly controlled and largely subject to users' consent.

Facebook shares fell 1.3 percent to US$191.50 before the bell on Monday, in what was otherwise an upbeat start for Wall Street.

The software referred to by the newspaper was launched 10 years ago and was used by about 60 companies, including Amazon, Apple, Blackberry, HTC, Microsoft and Samsung, Facebook's vice president of product partnerships Ime Archibong wrote in a blog post.

The Times said that Facebook allowed companies access to the data of users' friends without their explicit consent, even after declaring that it would no longer share such information with outsiders.

Some device makers could retrieve personal information even from users' friends who believed they had barred any sharing, the newspaper said.

"Contrary to claims by the New York Times, friends' information, like photos, was only accessible on devices when people made a decision to share their information with those friends," said Ime Archibong, Facebook's vice president of product partnerships.
